CFC TV: Slow starts? Falk thinks WSU has issue solved

PULLMAN – Washington State starting quarterback Luke Falk says the Cougs really needed the bye week. Falk said the Cougs’ inability to start fast has been addressed, and that players and coaches are holding each other accountable to work and improve in that area. Colton Teglovic and Marcellus Pippins also talked about WSU vs. Oregon this Saturday (6:30 pm, Pac-12 Networks).

One quick note before we get to what the players had to say Monday: On Monday evening, after the Whitman County prosecutor issued a statement on why no charges would be filed against safety Shalom Luani, WSU AD Bill Moos issued this statement:

“We are pleased that the prosecuting attorney’s office came to the same conclusion as we did regarding this case. While not always afforded the opportunity, I believe this illustrates the stance we have taken from the beginning which is to handle such matters internally, not speak in great detail, until the legal process has played out. Though we choose to reserve comment on such instances, we continue to cooperate with law enforcement, and assume innocent until proven guilty. We will not engage in public debate, rather, will let the legal process run its course, and as best we can gain an understanding of all the facts, without publicly acknowledging guilt or innocence prematurely. We will continue to educate our student-athletes on representing our fine university is a positive manner and also emphasize they remove themselves from situations that have the potential to impact them and the university negatively," said Moos.


“We have a lot to improve on as an offense,” Falk said. “I think we’ve left a lot of meat on the table, and I think this bye week we did a really good job of finding ways that we can maximize our performance and bring our offense even higher.”
